Super Stalking Psycho

WARNING: After reading this you may be sad that you are my friend or you gave birth to me.

I have offically gone crazy. Everyday I like to see what is going on in wedding blogland. One of my favorite sites, Style Me Pretty featured a wedding that freaked me out. The girl had my wedding. She wore one of my favorite dresses and her table runners were exactly what I have been looking for the past 6 months.

Check it out.

If you know me and talk to me on a normal basis you know this is freaky.

Here is where things take a turn for the worst. I decided it would be a good idea to get in touch with this girl (that I do not know) and see if she wanted to sell her table runners. I then proceeded to her. I just typed in her and her husbands name and like that I had her last name. I then used Facebook to send her a message. I tried to explain as crazy as this seems I a normal person just trying to plan a wedding on a budget. We will see what happens. I have to admit I am sad for all parties involved and hopefully this girl does not get a restraining order on her stalker.

Moving on.

I have not purchased a bag in over 2 years. I am very attached to my Louis but I figured it was time for a change. I need something bigger. I need something bluer. I need something Ikat.

Our little house has been quite this week. Hank is on vaycay with my parents for 3 weeks. I think Roy is pretty lonely. Doug says the house is peaceful. I think it's boring.

On a happier note, we are going to OIB in 4 days. Doug has been trying to install a radio on the boat. It is almost as scary as him trying to paint stripes on a wall. The thought of getting a professional to install it has not crossed his mind yet. He says he is doing it for "me and my silly friends so we can listen to the Blackeyed Peas." Yeah, I don't know what that means but I will take it as a compliment.

Oh ish

Sofas that have never been urinated on.

I still think the pillows of Hank and Roy are my favorite.

Random ish from my grandma's

This butterfly was killed and frozen in time by my grandmother. Now it sits in my living room.


art (my family seal),

milk glass,


old Bourban sniffers for my non-existent bar

and a duck that was hand carved by my great grandfather. Doug found it and I am kind of in love. I really believe in filling your house with things that have meaning to you {unless it is a ridiculously good looking console table, that is okay too.}

Who knew my grandmother's basement could be more exciting than HomeGoods.

Wedding Weekend

One of my best childhood friends got married this weekend. It was perfect. It took place in her backyard and no pictures could do it justice.

Friday we had a spa day. My mom was my servant which as a nice change from just yelling at me about how much weddings cost.

It was great to spend some time with my girls from home and the rehearsal night was a lot of fun.

Catherine was beautiful! The reception was a lot of fun and I did not embarrass myself at all. Unfortunately I do no think some of our mother's friends can say the same thing. I think there was some blood shed on the dance floor.


After today there will be no more "pee couches". Doug will miss you. It was fun.
New sofas are coming today. It is my first legit adult purchase.

Summer Essentials.

A good book- preferably one that will look good on the bookshelf when I am done. Also, something that requires little to zero thinking. Summer=no thinking for me.

{Carrie Diaries}

Jorts. Never thought I would say that.

{Lots of Jorts to choose from}

I love love love to make lists of everything. Especially during the summer when I am going on trips.

{Tie Dye Journals}



That is all for now.

fun giveaway

Go check out flourish design + style. Sarah is having an awesome giveaway.

This art by annechovie

was inspired by Anna Spiro's chair.

Go stalk Sarah and possibly win some art.

Keep on dreaming

I really like how Horchow likes to make you think you can afford something. They are offering like 25-30% off of EVERYTHING. For a whole 30 seconds I started looking for at cocktail tables. Thank you, Horchow for offering 25% off of a $1500 dollar coffee table. That will barely cover the shipping. Thank you BUT no thank you. In the 30 seconds I found...

Dear Mom,
Please keep and eye out for these at Mr. Freedmans.

Done and done

Doug went fishing the whole weekend. Bad idea. I get bored and get ideas. I decided Friday I was tired of staring at this...

barf. boring.
With a little help(actually a little from Abby and none from Garison) we had a new room by Friday night.


We are all pooped.

Back to the Monday grind with an early trip to the DMV. Unforturnatley my drivers license expired in December.

Weekend Plans Include

Stalking the flea market and antique stores until I find a borderline free bar cart.

Finding a place to throw away all the boxes in my car. True Life: I am a Hoarder. That is not true. I just like to hide the boxes that come in the mail from Doug. I did this for a month and this is what happened. Deceiving but necessary.

I am also planning on transforming this Craigslist mess

Best of Etsy

Lots of good things on Etsy. Here are some of my favorites. Now go spend 3 hours at work getting lost. It is okay. It is almost Friday.


Fred Fisher aquatic rubbings. The guy actually catches the fish and does a rubbing. Doug is even a fan. I am waiting to try it on one of the fish Doug catches before I buy one. I will let you know how that goes.

Pretty Plum Sugar

TuTus. These make me want to have a baby. Not really. I would rather just dress my cousin's little girl in them for now.
